Online Services Now Available for Management of Social Security Benefits, Called "My Social Security"

Laptop1_07312014It is now possible to access information about Social Security benefits online through a service that the Social Security Administration announced called "My Social Security." This new online service will allow people to view and print their benefit verification letter, payment history, and earnings record. They can also change their address and their direct deposit information.

The benefit verification letter can be used to provide proof of income for a mortgage, a loan, or to apply for other government benefits. It can also be used to show proof of age, disability status and Medicare coverage.

The Social Security Administration says that it processed almost 9 million request for benefit verification letters last year. Social Security employees are already taxed by higher workloads, and the agency has said that it expects to provide fewer services as a result of budget cuts and a smaller workforce. By providing this service for people to access these letters themselves online, Social Security employees will be able to shift their work load to other important tasks.

The online services are also expected to reduce the waiting time that beneficiaries face for receiving information.

The service is available online at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount. People must be at least 18 to use the service. Users will be prompted to create an online account by providing unique information about themselves.

Users who are at least 18 but who are not receiving benefits will be able to use the service to receive a Social Security statement, which estimates future Social Security benefits for retirement.

The online services will also include links to other important online benefit services, including disability and Medicare.
